Review:

A brilliant account of English literary culture, as engaging as it is illuminating.--Lionel Trilling

A very intelligent, interesting, and intensely readable book.--Isaiah Berlin

Strewn with marvelous bits: deft apercus, biographical portraits of great subtlety and force, wit, commonsensical intelligence everywhere. No one who cares about the state of literature can afford to neglect this book.--Joseph Epstein

No praise can be too high...remarkable for its balance and sense of perspective.--Noel Annan "The New York Review Of Books "
